|BBC Television received in New York - November 1938 - Alexandra Palace Television Society|
The four-minute compilation from 1938 exists only because of a technological fluke and the enthusiasm of two television buffs, one in Britain and the other in America where, thanks to freak atmospheric conditions, it was picked up and recorded on a cine camera placed in front of a television screen as the images came in. Andrew Emmerson, the British enthusiast, spent five years tracking down the recording and believes it is the only surviving example of pre-war live high-definition British telev...

|The Garry Moore Show - Misc 1955 Episode|
I thought I had already uploaded this, but I can't find it. I don't know if this is a complete episode or not, but here's 43 minutes of "The Garry Moore Show" from 1955, featuring original commercials for products like Lux dishwashing liquid, Franco-American canned foods, and Sta-Flo liquid starch. A delightful daytime series with comedy, music, and talk. Certainly much better than that sleeping-pill show hosted by that lipton-tea addict.

|''I Remember Mama'' - Madame Zodiak|
An episode of the "live TV" dramedy "Mama" (which is often referred "I Remember Mama") from 1950. What amazes me is that, we are in the 2010s, with this 1950s show, set in the 1910s! It's like going back in time twice!! In this episode, Aunt Jenny is told by a fortune teller that she'll soon get great wealth. With original commercials (please forgive dodgy tape-transfer, and slight cut-off at end).
